Being gifted a set of drums at 3 years old, raised in a famiy of jazz musicians and educators, music has paved a path in my life that has defined who I am as an individual. After 20 years of performing and touring, Ive recently changed my focus to both building my studio, and working on my own production and songwriting. Ive been creating a modern teaching curriculum environment that encompasses a new studio technology approach paired with the traditional vocabulary Ive been immersed in most of my life.
My father built a legacy of one of the most successful music programs in North America at Semiahmoo Secondary. With all his valuable knowledge, wisdom, guidance, and success, Ive taken this gift and paired it with my understanding of current music production and technology, which has given me a way to develop a strong understanding to connect with our youth and help them find their own artistic expression. Im constantly seeking out young, enthusiastic individuals who have a sense of talent, drive, and of course, a passion and love of music. I hope to offer similar opportunities Ive been lucky enough to have myself.
These lessons also go far beyond the boundaries of just the music, helping develop skills that can be utilized infinitely though-out ones life.
I hope this page will give you a glimpse inside my unique world, my philosophy, my studio work, and the sonic vibrations I share with anyone and everyone willing to receive and project alike.
Thank you for entertaining this opportunity and I hope to hear from you soon!
